What You Need
  • ¼ cup bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 3½ cups frozen Montmorency cherries, plus 2 cherries for garnish
  • 1½ tablespoons cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 1½ cups 2% milk or coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
What To Do
  1. For the chocolate swirls (optional), melt the chocolate by filling a large skillet halfway with water and bringing it to a simmer. Place the chocolate chips in a heat-safe bowl (metal or glass). Once the water is simmering, turn off the heat and place the bowl of chocolate in the water, then stir until it is melted. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, then use a spoon to drizzle the melted chocolate onto the paper in random swirl patterns. Place the baking sheet in the freezer and freeze until serving.
  2. For the milkshakes, in a blender combine frozen  cherries, cocoa powder, maple syrup, milk, and vanilla extract and blend until smooth. Pour into a glass and if desired, stir in chocolate swirls, leaving out 2 for a garnish. Serve immediately, garnished with chocolate swirls and extra frozen cherries.
